I wanted to make an early German tank crew, I opened this Tristar kit. I bought this kit in a very small but my favorite hobby shop which had already gone out of business. In Japan, there were plenty of plastic model stores in the past, but now they are folded up one after another. I wonder it’s a similar situation all over the world.
All heads of this kit are good quality and keep them for later opportunity, try replacing the resin heads.
The heads of the Afrika Korps cap were also attached and I keep them, unfortunately the original head was damaged when separating a characteristic helmet like a beret, called Schutz Mütze. But well, I don’t know I’ll use them. It is one of the habits common to modelers to gather everything.
Because there is no hair, I had additionally working with epoxy putty.
I tried sitting him on the edge of a tank as the process of building 35 (t) light tank which was hardly used in the early of the WWII. That’s pretty good.
He has a dignified look like an elite tank soldier. The beret’s decal is Tamiya. It is the coloring like silver, but if we want to express it more white, I’ll draw it with a fine brush. A detailed pattern requires very high skill, I want to challenge it next time.
Basically, these four figures are going to fit perfectly to the Panzerkampfwagen type I, but unfortunately there are only 35(t), it doesn’t match with the hatch of this tank. Perhaps 38(t), type II or type III tanks are going to fit. Somehow the order of making is reversed.
Although it is a tank crew in the early stage of the WWII, I tried various military medals. Smiling expression.
This headphone has fine photo etched parts on the ear-touch, the headband was also thin photo etched strap and very good.
The relaxed smile expression of laughing. I wonder if his eyes are big.
The tank soldiers wearing this overcoat were perfectly matched with the tank earlier, but when he gripped the headphone it interfered with the edge of the hatch.
Early tank soldiers are wearing scarves around their necks. Is there a lot of use in the case of anti-dust and injuries?
He is a standing tank crew wearing overcoat. Sergeant with binoculars in his hand.
I tried making 4 figures in the meantime, although it is best to match with type I tank. I might buy that tank if the stock were cleared. I want Tamiya to release Panzerkampfwagen I kit. Then I’ll get it at least three.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
